About the Author:

Joe studied Philosophy at Cambridge University, graduating in 2002. While there he wrote and performed with the Cambridge Footlights and co-hosted a show on the University radio station.

(You can hear the songs through his website.)

Review:

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge"Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator... Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times"Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller"the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps"Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle"A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine.Praise for Jimmy Coates: Target"With cinematic skill, Craig unrolls a series of action-packed scenes, with a new crisis at every turn of the page. It's gripping, but not mindless" Angela KilversteinPraise for Jimmy Coates: Killer"...a totally excellent adventure - a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you've never read before. Someone make this into a movie!" Flipside"A gripping action-thriller that's packed with twists." Funday Times"The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum." VOYA
